Outlook and guidance

The competitive environment has been fierce but stable in Finland. Elisa is the market leader in its industry and successful in competition. Growth has been driven by the growing mobile data and smartphone markets as well as strong investment in new services, among other factors. The majority of the mobile phones sold were smartphones, which further increased the use of mobile data services. The Elisa Viihde IPTV service, with its diverse selection of entertainment, generated growth in the fixed broadband business. ICT services directed towards corporate customers and online services directed towards consumer customers are also growing.
